If the two platforms have coexisted for more than two years now, know that this era will soon be over. Google has indeed cracked a press release to announce the final shutdown of Google Play Music in December 2021. The transfer of your playlists must therefore be finalized by this deadline, otherwise they will be lost.
A gradual disappearance
Also according to the firm across the Atlantic, users of the service will no longer be able to use the application by October. But rest assured, migrating your account from one platform to another will always be possible. Importing, buying or downloading music from Google Play Music will no longer be part of the functionality by the end of August, however.
